With this tour, there is the option to hop off at any one of four piers to experience some of New York City’s finest attractions, such as Times Square, Wall Street, and the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum—not to mention all the shopping, dining, and sightseeing possibilities.

High expectations dashed

This was a singularly disappointing experience--yet it could have been fun and interesting. First, on arrival, we were told that the all-day access had been cut back so customers no longer were permitted to hop on and off the boat for the stops beginning at 4:25 pm! We were basically riding a harbour tour now, which is much less expensive than the hop on/hop off tour. Second, there was almost no opportunity to view the sights because the upper deck of the boat was crowded with people standing against the railings. We basically saw the backsides of our fellow passengers. Apparently, common courtesy is uncommon, and the crew and company set no guidelines for behavior or consideration of other passengers. It was every man for himself. Finally, the tour "narrator" contributed to this chaos by himself sitting on the arms of our seats --blocking our view from inside downstairs (middle row) as he chatted up the passenger behind us! *This resulted in our escape to the upper deck, which we enjoyed only until a throng of passengers who had hopped off earlier in the day reboarded, obstructing the view entirely.

The whole experience was top notch. The on off schedule, the narration and the ability to stay on the boat for an extended time was great. We will surely do it again very soon. NJ resident Sam

Arrived at 10am after a 4 mile, hour drive to parking garage. Battery Park we were told was the opposite way . arrived at pier 11:30am . We saw 3 NY water taxis cruise around the corner. 12:50pm one taxi picked us up. Ticket information said food and beverage for sale, not a thing was on board. Air conditioning did work below.

I really enjoyed the tour. Unfortunately I took the last time slot so there was no time for hop-on and hop-off at certain destination. I'll have to do this again.

This tour was awesome! We reserved on line the morning of and showed up at the pier. We showed them the confirmation and redeemed our tickets. We never waited more than 10 minutes to board back onto the boat at any stop. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and all staff were very friendly. The original purpose of taking this tour was to see the statue of liberty and we sure did! There was no need to take the Ellis island tour. We stopped close to it and were given the opportunity to take pictures in front of Lady Liberty AND the tour guide took our picture. I would highly recommend this if you are trying to see all parts of the city.

I booked this tour for a family day trip. Most of us had already been to/lived in NYC but never really explored. The hop on/hop off cruise was perfect! We were able to get away from the busy streets and take in the skyline...get to Brooklyn - where we had never visited and parts of Manhattan - without the aggravating traffic. The only thing I would change would to make the boats go faster haha! There are guides on top and below deck giving you a history - but we honestly weren't paying attention, but if you're into that, sit close! The boat does not stop at Ellis Island but gives you a chance to take a photo op which was nice.

walk to the pier from 40th street, I thought since the pier is at 39th street I could walk towards 39th, but that was a mistake coming from 8th Ave, you have to go around the Javits Center so avoid going down there. But, once on the boat its great. You'll wait for it inside a lobby in the pier, there are snacks to purchase and a rest room. the tour guide is very informative, great views of the statue, and other historic landmarks. I went with my mom and brother's family. My mom loved it so much she wants to do it again. The price for me, mom, and my 2 kids was around 94. I'd do it again anytime anyone is visiting. Get there early to get a good seat on the boat double decker type, seating upstairs and downstairs.

The staff were friendly and did a good job of getting us on and off the boat quickly and safely! The only issue we encountered was we were lined up to leave and were told we had to wait for another while the boat that was unloading had a mechanical issue so we had to wait for another boat, it was fine.....you provided a very fun day
